It's Your Special Day

Morning, hope you are all enjoying your weekend. We have another fabulous challenge for you over at the Love to Create Challenge Blog where the theme is Anything Creative/Mixed Media Goes.
I decided to showcase some warm Autumnal tones this week using some of my favourite PanPastel colours.
To begin, I applied DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylics Diarylide Yellow, Hansa Yellow Medium and touches of Vermillion Hue to the background, applying with a baby wipe to blend the colours. I then die cut two circles from scrap card and used the circular apertures as a stencil and then blended PanPastel Orange over each of the circles; applying Permanent Red PanPastel lightly to the edges of each circle.
I applied Magenta PanPastel over Tim Holtz Dot Fade Layering Stencil to add smaller circles to the background for added interest. I stamped the sentiment with Black Archival Ink using Tim Holtz Crazy Talk Stamp Set.
I placed a poppy stencil onto the background and applied Black Coarse Pearl Medium PanPastel over the stencil and I then sprayed the card lightly with hairspray to seal the Pastels. Random machine stitching and Tissue Tape has also been added for further interest to the design. To complete I added scratchy lines with DecoArt Media Fluid Acrylic Carbon Black, using an old credit card and dried with a heat tool.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
